Fear of Missing Out Affecting Teens’ in South Africa

A recent survey conducted by a pharmaceutical firm in the South Africa has found that a large number of teens are afraid of missing something. Fear of Missing out (FOMO) is an epidemic in the South Africa which has captured the minds of teens.

It has been informed that the inability of taking away one's mobile and too much exposure to the social networking sites causes the disorder or FOMO among people. Pharma Dynamics conducted the survey.

Spokesperson of Pharma Dynamics informed, "The survey confirmed that over 62 per cent of South Africans admitted that they live in constant fear of missing out (FOMO)". The survey was carried out when it was found that a large number of people were opting for immune-boosting supplement.

Twitting and Facebook uploads are common among the teens. However, the kids of the South Africa are taking it too seriously. Next to South Africa, Kenya and Nigeria are caught in the trap of social networking.

Social networking isn't bad but too much of anything can leave adverse impact over our health. Therefore, parents are being urged to keep a tab over the children's exposure to the social networking sites.
